Scholarship Podium, Bühler, Harvey West 2022

The last weeks of May have been intense. Scholarship winner Mitch completed the remaining steps to obtain his full competition license, Bühler renewed their partnership with Jenkins Racing, and race cars were prepped for the first race of the season.

Mitch successfully completed his SCCA License School at Brainerd International Raceway and was awarded his road racing license. He raced car number 76 to a second place finish on Saturday, and finished just outside the podium on Sunday.

In addition to the scholarship program, long time supporters Bühler Group and Hammer Wood Floors LLC join us at the race track once again for the 2022 season.

Bühler holds globally leading market positions in technologies and methods for processing grain into flour and feed, as well as for the production of pasta and chocolate, in die casting, wet grinding and surface coating. The company’s core technologies are in the areas of mechanical and thermal process engineering.
Hammer Wood Floors is a leading hardwood flooring expert in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota.

Drivers Sam Nogosek and Andrew Jenkins both finished in the mid-pack after some car and transponder challenges caused less-than-satisfactory qualifying sessions. Both drivers raced hard and gained positions during the races. Unfortunately car 47 suffered an serious engine issue on Sunday and had to be retired.

Overall the six days spent at Brainerd International Raceway rewarded the team with good results and new challenges for the future. Thanks to all the road racing sponsors, event organizers, and SCCA volunteers!
